There is nothing I like more than talking to people about food and drink but especially beer.
I am a qualified Beer Sommelier with the Academy of Beer & Cider, Cicerone Certified Beer Server and a CAMRA trainer.
British Guild of Beer Writers & International Judge
This has led me to become an International Beer Judge and a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers.
I have a passion for education with fun, so I have developed a partnership with Norfolk Wine Schools to present their beer events and deliver their BPET (Beer Professional Education Training) courses which are the UK version of the Cicerone.
Award Winning Tour Designer
I am also an award-winning tour designer for tours in the UK and Europe.
CAMRA Beer Festivals
As part of my voluntary work with CAMRA I have been the Manager of the World Beer Bar for Norwich Beer Festival for the last 4 years and I was the manager for the Great British Beer Festival (Winter) WWB 2018 & 2019, bringing into the UK some very special and unique beers.
My experience growing up within the hospitality sector means that I have an awareness of what the customer and retailer is looking for in a product and how to promote products to them using language that they can understand developed to their experience and needs.
I am also a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter and a Qualified tutor in Art and History.
